Red Power, August, 2011

From Red Power, August 2011
Headline: Sombat Boonngamanong, a genuine red who did not ask for a ministerial post. [This contrasts with Red Shirt leaders like Nattawut and Jatuporn who seemed eager to compromise on any issue in return for posts in the Pheu Thai-led government] If Yingluck keeps concentrating only on reconciliation, then she’ll certainly die. [This possibly means she won’t be successful in running the country or controlling her cabinet if she tries to pander to demands for reconciliation.]
Other headlines: Yingluck’s government with 300 supporting MPs is not stable – Autocracy in Thailand – The aristocratic cabinet is feeling queasy, commoners are praising their power.
